The 9th season premiere event For ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” sparkled in Downtown LA on Sunday evening, September 25th. The event highlighted the extreme efforts by cast and crew and was celebrated in the historic Vibiana Cathedral in Downtown Los Angeles.
The cast, crew and staff who create, design, build and make the dreams come true for so many deserving families, were honored by Hollywood elite. The private industry event boasted nearly 600 attendees and featured a silent auction that benefitted the American Cancer Society.
From True Blood’s Nondumiso Tembe to real housewife Gretchen Rossi, American Cancer Society supporters elegantly graced the Cathedral’s courtyard while enjoying cocktails, small bites and amusingly watching a bevy of young actors cruise on Street Strider bikes; the world’s first elliptical cross trainer on wheels!
The event saw the show’s designers, creators, production staff and builders mingle across the Cathedral’s interiors engaging in a slew of interactive zones and demos including an on-site dermatologist administering Velashape II treatments, a Snapfish by HP photo booth with accompanying props and artist installations. The event, hosted by Hollywood Branded Inc., was a tremendous success and a great time had by all.
